Here are 4 of our favorite fun holiday party themes to consider. We’ve done many variations of these parties over the years, and they are always a hit!
One of the best parts of a Disco-themed party is that everyone has songs from the 70s they know and love. A packed dance floor is almost guaranteed. Especially if you have some great DJs from Events By Design helping everyone get their groove on!
Encourage your guests to go all out on the 70’s clothing. Anything from a white John Travolta jumpsuit to funky and colorful dresses for the ladies. When it comes to Disco, everything that glitters is what you are looking for.
Decor such as mirror balls, LED lighting, and dance floor lighting is a must. We can take it even farther than that with pin spot lighting, colorful uplights, and a stage for the DJ. Whatever you can dream up, we can design! We can help transform your party into a night in New York City. Your guests will get that Studio 54 feel from the moment they walk through the door.
Adding in a photobooth for a Disco-themed holiday party is a great idea. Those costumes will be the talk of the office and having photos of them will remind everyone what a great time they had.
A Mad Men theme has so many ways to go with the decor! Think custom cocktails, smoky eyes, and backcombed up-dos. Toss in a few vintage cocktail dresses, candy cigarettes, and martini glasses..you get the idea!
We can help you with everything from creative concepts to design and entertainment. How about a lounge area with mid-century furniture, a big shag rug? Or servers walking around with gogo boots and drink carts?
Coming up with some vintage posters based on your company logo would be amazing. We love working with Clark Graphics and Signarama for our printing needs. Mood lighting could be anything from amber to an orange/red would create just the right glow. We can project lighting designs onto walls, floors, or even the side of a building!
For entertainment, music from the ’60s definitely needs to be on the playlist. How about adding in some Karaoke to liven up the party? There isn’t a soul on the planet who doesn’t know at least one song from The Beatles. And there’s always the sweet sounds of Etta James and other jazz greats from the era. It’s always fun to see who comes out of their shell to sing!
Is it Milwaukee, or is it Vegas, baby?! That’s what we want your guests to think as they walk in the door of your Casino-themed holiday party. All of the fun of gambling, with no losers!
Decorating for this theme can go anywhere from a high glam Oceans 11 feel to a more kitschy old-school Vegas feel. We have everything from Marquee letters to step and repeat backdrops if you want that red carpet feel.
And because it’s all about the bright lights, we can come up with some creative ideas for lighting. Anything from projected rolling dice to mood lighting that turns high-energy for late-night dancing. Our techs and stagehands take care of all the setup and takedown on the day of the party. You don’t have to worry about anything, just have fun!
A DJ is always a good idea, both for providing MC services as the tables open and close but also to provide some music for the non-gamblers. The trick to a successful casino night is to have a good variety of entertainment and activities. Make sure everyone feels welcome to join in on the action, or hang out at their own pace. Our planners have years of experience to help you find the right mix.
Murder Mystery-themed holiday parties can be an absolute blast for your participants. One of the best things about them is there are so many variations to choose from. You could do a different theme every year and never repeat one.
The next thing to choose is the storyline and the characters. Pinpointing who the characters are in the murder mystery encourages your guests to dress up as their favorite characters. Imagine an entire room of Kramers, Jerry’s, and Elaine’s! This gets people in the spirit of the hunt, and you can lead them on an epic adventure.
After you have chosen your theme, let us help you with the production and design. We can help brainstorm ideas on venue location, creating a smooth event flow, as well as lighting and decor inspiration.
Murder mystery parties need a good flow to keep everyone engaged throughout the game. We recommend working with a professional who can help coordinate all the details and keep the game moving. Check out Murder Mystery Co for help coordinating your Milwaukee murder mystery!
We can then provide any other forms of entertainment you need. We love to pair murder mystery parties with a DJ to play on-theme music during intermittent time. And, of course, a photo booth to capture all those wacky costumes.
